Beefy Crescent Bake
What I needed this week was easy. And most of this was in the fridge so....
If you have the following ingredients on hand here is a quickie.
1 and a half pounds of ground beef or a combo of ground turkey/beef/pork
1 medium onion, chopped
about a cup of shredded cheddar cheese
refrigerated crescent rolls
a small can of tomato sauce
Saute the onion and mushroom. Add garlic if you have it.
When the onion mix is soft add ground meat and brown. Be sure to drain the fat off after the meat is browned. (No photos of that procedure but it's simple).
Add tomato sauce and some oregano, salt and pepper to meat. It will look a bit like a sloppy joe. When it's mixed up, grab a baking dish. A 9x13 should do well.
After you've tipped the ground beef mixture into the baking dish, cover with cheddar cheese, or whatever you like such as colby jack, mozzarella...
Now prepare the cresent rolls and sour cream mix. In a small bowl place about 3/4 cup or more of sour cream. Add oregano and basil. Mix well.
Separate the crescent rolls and place a heaping tablespoon of sour cream mix inside. Roll up as you would to bake a crescent roll. Place atop the ground meat mixture.
Here it is just popped in the oven. Bake at 375 degrees until crescents are browned.
After 25 minutes you'll have browned crescents rolls atop the melted cheese on beef mixture. Herbed sour cream sliding out the sides of the hot rolls....a real treat.
For a side dish that is equally easy, we sauteed some veggies.

Stir it gently with a bit of olive oil......
The yellow, red and browned bits compliment each other........
Tasty, fast and inexpensive meal.
Nice comfort food when you've had a less than ideal week.
Interesting week, weather-wise. On Tuesday evening we were able to sit outside enjoying a good dinner as the temperatures were Springlike. ...
